Skype 5.7 for iPhone: Smarter and Faster Chat

At Skype, we work hard to incorporate your ideas to continue building a great app that helps you do more with the people you love, whenever you’re apart. In fact, on the Skype for iPhone team, we personally read each piece of user feedback and categorize comments by hand to determine what to work on next, so your input really matters.

In the Skype 5.7 for iPhone update, we addressed some of the most common user suggestions. We can’t wait for you to download the new version to take advantage of the new features inspired by your feedback:

Save and delete photo

  • If you want to save a memorable photo to your camera roll or delete a sent photo from a chat, simply press and hold the image and the options will appear

Faster chat load time

  • Now when you receive a notification and tap it to open the app, the message will be there waiting for you without any delays.

Avatars for all chat

  • You can now see all avatars for groups and people, and if they’re changed on other platforms, they’ll update in the app too so you always have the latest showing.

People list UI improvements

  • In 5.7, we’ve made it easier to find the people list search and filter options, so you can quickly and easily find the person you want to chat with and get started.

Have a great idea that you want to share? Let us know via the new iOS Ideas group in the Skype Community. To get the latest news and tips, follow us on Twitter and Facebook. If you’ve not yet downloaded the latest version of Skype for iPhone, you can get the update from the App Store – all you’ll need is iOS 7 or later.
